Mimic Directors Cut competition

Win! Guillermo Del Toro’s never before seen cut of Mimic on Blu-ray

Science fiction and horror combine just in time for Halloween in the Mimic : Special Edition, from superstar director Guillermo Del Toro, released on Blu-ray for the first time on 31 October 2011, courtesy of Studiocanal.

Cockroaches are spreading a deadly disease around Manhattan, claiming the lives of the city’s children. Entomologist Susan Tyler (Mira Sorvino - Mighty Aphrodite , Reservation Road ) and her husband Peter Mann (Jeremy Northam – Enigma , Gosford Park ) use genetic engineering to create the Judas Breed to kill off the deadly cockroaches. However, this deadly strain of insect evolves over time, growing as big as people and learning to mimic their movements. The perfect killer is born and humanity is its hunting ground...

It’s an underrated gem in Del Toro’s filmography and one Del Toro fans have been waiting years to see in its director-approved form.
